Hi, my first post here!
I became “enhanced” (xDF2 standard location) about a year ago and have been playing around for some time.
I recently contacted DOM who make the the door cylinder I now have with some questions and was very friendly invited to come and test stuff. Of course I went over and was kindly allowed to test my tag with their hardware and ask a lot of questions.
So key takeaways for us (us = if not using original DOM Eniq tags):
- Currently the lock only checks UID
- Somewhere in October/November the option to have data on tag will be made available (expected date).
Original DOM tags use Desfire EV2 with applications. The future data on tag system will write applications on the card. How that will work exactly I do not yet know, but I was told that applications will be written to the card. I expect that to mean that the lock will not only check UID! But will post it here as soon as they release it.
Dom has a Eniq App that works like a charm, setup is a breeze. It works thru BLE, and thru this you can open the door from your phone, add tags, delete tags, check the acces log. And other stuff. The log function is nice as well. Adding a non DOM tag costs €4.70 in-app.
If you don’t want to have your phone involved you can also program the lock directly with the “MasterCard” (also does not cost €4.70 per tag).
On the cylinder you see in the video below it is easy to get a good read every time. For the model in the video you can attempt a read every 8secs. I also tested the complete solution where the entire plate has a integrated reader and handle (Eniq Guard) but had some trouble, but practice and knowing how to present your chip might fix that. If you have a FlexDF2 I think it should work no problem.
They also have padlocks among other lock types.
Thought some might find this interesting, there is more info but didn’t want to make the post long(er)
